good morning, america. moment of truth tonight. the biggest campaign showdown so far. the rematch set in this arena. the stakes highest for the president. head-to-head with mitt romney, answering voter questions directly. will this shake up the race one more time? breaking overnight, the client list. the first round of names in that escalating prostitution scandal in the famous tourist town of kennebunk, now being revealed. the zumba teacher at the center of it all still refusing to speak. and now the town's poring over the names. terrifying moment caught on tape. watch this woman's split-second reaction on a train. as she comes shockingly close to another train sticking her head out a window. the last-second move to save her life. and america's favorite friend, so crazy in love, tearing up as she speaks for the
7:01 am
first time about her engagement. >> i just got verklempt. >> what she is saying about that huge bling on her finger and is she really three months' pregnant? we are well protected this morning. good morning, everyone. as you know, robin home recovering from the bone marrow transplant. we got lara back, elizabeth vargas is back. and what a big night coming up. crucial second debate. a little theater in the round at hofstra university. the president and mitt romney will be taking questions from uncommitted voters picked by the gallup organization. and moderator candy crowley will have follow-up questions on this. the president has done one town meeting this year. mitt romney has done 23 this year. >> mitt romney has had more practice on the debates because of the primary campaign. we'll get to all that this morning.
7:02 am
and a big headline overnight from secretary of state hillary clinton. for the first time, coming forward and verbally taking responsibility for the deadly attack in libya. that killed the u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. we'll hear from her in just a few moments. this has been a big political football on capitol hill. >> absolutely. >> and go game-on, people. we're inside for the audition of the male model for one of everybody's favorite game shows. "the price is right." for this guy, get ready to meet rob, everybody. let's get right to the big debate. >> thank you, lara. >> i cannot wait to meet rob. just 21 days to go. the pressure this on time on president obama. it's "your voice your vote." jake tapper is at hofstra where the candidates will square off tonight. good morning, jake.
7:03 am
>> reporter: good morning, george. well, president obama for the first time referred to the race as tied, although according to some polls, mitt romney has a slight lead. it makes the second debate far more important than president obama probably could have ever anticipated. president obama is right now hunkered down at this luxurious virginia golf resort, taking only an occasional though much needed break from his debate prep with a stroll around the rolling greens. this is how serious the president is about his debate prep. he left his golf clubs at the white house. mitt romney's mock debate is played by ohio rob senator rob portman. >> how did it go, senator? >> great. >> reporter: tonight brings the one and only town hall debate, both candidates taking questions directly from the audience, all undecided voters. it's a format that can bring curveballs. >> i'm exhausted. i'm exhausted at defending you, defending your administration. >> reporter: mitt romney will
7:04 am
look to build on his momentum following his first debate performance. but he has to knock down the idea that he cannot relate to the average american. the debate's moderator cnn's candy crowley, agitated both campaigns ahead of the debate by suggesting, heaven forbid that she may ask follow-up questions in case candidates try to evade answers. >> when something comes up that maybe could use a little further explanation, it might be as simple, the question, sir, said oranges and you said apples. could you answer oranges. >> reporter: in past town halls, it was the candidates themselves, and not the way they wanted. like the 2008 debate, where john mccain seemed to be wandering aimlessly around the stage. or in 2000 when vice president al gore walked right up to governor george w. bush. in a way that governor bush later referred to as getting in his chili. and this classic 1992 move from george h.w. bush, where he checked the time. he would soon have plenty of it.
7:05 am
this town hall debate provides candidates an opportunity to have an exchange with voters about their concerns. but it also provides them with an opportunity to mess up that interaction and appear out of touch and clueless. so it really is high stakes. >> it sure is. thank you. let's bring in matthew dowd with more. what a reversal since the first debate. last time, president obama came in with momentum, he came in with very high expectations. this time, expectations are reversed. most people think mitt romney is going to win tonight. >> the president came in four or five points ahead. and it's at best tied or a point or so behind. he has to bring his a-game. he can't show up like alex rodriguez. and miss the ball time after time. he's got to bring the pitches. he's got to be assertive but he can't be aggressive in this. if he is not, he and michelle might get the boxes and call the movers. if he doesn't bring his a-game, he might not be in the white house. >> that means answering the questions of the voters first, before you pivot to attack.
7:06 am
and in these kinds of town hall meetings, it's always seemed that the stage craft matters even more than the podium. >> style matters. stage craft relates much more. it's how you relate to the voters and come across on television. the president in the last debate, came across as passive. came across as without energy. he's got to bring the energy. but he can't be aggressive because he can't be aggressive to voters. >> how about mitt romney? any risk for him tonight? >> i think there is risk. he has momentum. if it stops dead in his tracks, the president has an advantage in the electoral college. but there is risk for mitt romney. >> matthew dowd, thank you very much. watch tonight. diane sawyer and i will anchor live debate coverage at 9:00 eastern, 6:00 pacific right here on abc. elizabeth. all right, george, now to that big headline from secretary of state hillary clinton overnight. she is taking responsibility for security failures in the deadly attack in benghazi, libya, that left a u.s. ambassador dead and three other americans, as well. abc's reena ninan spoke with hillary clinton and joins us
7:07 am
from lima, peru, with the latest this morning. good morning to you, reena. >> reporter: elizabeth, good morning. we sat down last night for an interview with the secretary of state. and we got answers for the first time on the situation in libya. >> let me say this. we will track down whoever did this and hold them accountable. >> reporter: in a series of television interviews overnight, secretary of state hillary clinton appeared to fall on her sword. >> i take responsibility. i'm in charge of the state department. 60,000-plus people, all over the world, 275 posts. the president and the vice president, certainly wouldn't be knowledgeable about specific decisions that are made by security professionals. >> reporter: in her first comments that the state department acknowledged the attack that killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three others was a coordinated terrorist assault. the secretary of state that she, not the president, was responsible for lapses in security. in an interview with abc news, clinton, who is traveling in peru, acknowledged there were
7:08 am
concerns about militants in libya. when did the u.s. become aware of transnational extremists operating in eastern libya? >> we have long known that extremists have come out of libya. we understood there would be an effort to try to re-establish a presence of extremist bases and operations. so it was something that we were have been focused on and working on. >> reporter: as for reports that the u.s. has special operation forces on standby in the region. ready to strike suspected terrorists. would the administration be willing to strike them before a u.s. election? >> there's an intense effort in our government. and i think our track record is pretty good eventually, we will find you. >> reporter: secretary clinton told the president of peru, she's eager to get back quickly because she wants to watch tonight's debate. elizabeth. >> all right, reena, thank you so much. josh elliott is here with
7:09 am
more of the morning headlines. good morning to you. >> we begin with breaking news about the young girl from pakistan, nearly killed by the taliban because she spoke out for women's right. doctors in england, where malala yousafzai, is being treated, is giving us new information about her condition, just as they deal with the security scare that led to very intense moments overnight. nick schifrin is there with the latest. good morning to you, nick. >> reporter: good morning, josh. this was a security scare that turned into a false alarm. two people tried to get into the hospital last night to see malala. police turned them away. but somehow the hospital communicated to reporters this morning that those people had been arrested. it goes to show how much tension there is over this girl's security, since the taliban are promising to try to kill her, no matter where she is. and it just goes to show how this fearless 14-year-old has really touched the taliban's nerve. the hospital, though, very pleased with her progress.
7:10 am
they say she could make still a full recovery. and a lot of people will be heartened by that news. this girl has become a symbol of resistance against the taliban. and an elegant advocate for girls' education. and so this morning, her supporters are saying that she will get better, she will go home. and, josh, she will go back to school. >> that's good news, indeed. nick schifrin, in london, thank you. now, a health alert in the country. more medications are being tied to that deadly meningitis outbreak. thus far, 214 cases and 15 deaths have been reported in the states you see highlighted here. now, the fda is sounding an alarm about two other drugs made at the new england compounding center. the pharmacy blamed for the outbreak. including injections given to patients who had eye operations and open-heart surgery. doctors are being urged to contact all patients receiving any injections made by the company. hikers missing for three days in the treacherous conditions of glacier national park have been found alive. jasen hiser, and neal peckens, two veterinarians from virginia
7:11 am
braved fierce winds and snow until a 50-person rescue team finally spotted them. they were in remarkably good shape and that is good news as well. and signs that shoppers are spending again. amazon is hiring some 50,000 workers for the holiday season and expect many of them to stay on permanently. retailers are reporting higher than expected sales. and take a look at this. a shocking scene when a preschool teacher took her class on a day trip. she was pulled over for driving all 19 kids in the class in her car. >> what? are you kidding me? >> i am not kidding you, elizabeth, not one bit. 11 in the backseat, 6 in the hatch back, and the rest in the front. police gave her a $160 ticket. >> i hope the parents fired her. >> we'll have an update. we saw this at the top of the show. do not stick your head outside of a train, people.
7:12 am
a teen riding this train with her friend thought it would be fun to stick it out and smile for the cameras. the problem is, there's a train bearing down. and she was just able to get her head back inside the train, again, missing her head by inches. she fell on the floor, in shock. she is okay. still, keep all hands, feet, heads in the train. >> that's a lesson learned. josh, thanks very much. the latest on the scandal shaking a wealthy resort town in maine. a zumba instructor has been arrested for running a prostitution ring out of her dance studio. and now, the names of some of her clients have been released. abc eight john schriffen has the story. >> reporter: this morning, 21 men allegedly caught up in the zumba prostitution separation now revealed. late monday, the police released the first round of names are the more than 150 men and reportedly one woman being investigated. 21 of them now charged with
7:13 am
engaging in prostitution. police believe they were clients of 29-year-old zumba fitness instructor alexis wright, charged with running a prostitution operation out of her fitness studio. the men on this document have been summoned to appear in court on december 5th. while police did not include ages and addresses for the alleged johns, overnight, abc news reached two men on the list, who confirmed they have been charged. monday, the judge in the case, denied a motion filed by an attorney for two of the alleged johns. quote, it would be a harm to their professional reputations and professional relationships." meantime, wright has pleaded not guilty to 106 counts related to her alleged prostitution ring. abc news exclusively tracked down wright at her home. can we talk to you about the allegations? >> absolutely not. >> reporter: you don't want to talk about the allegations? >> absolutely not. >> reporter: the allegations are not true?
7:14 am
>> i'm calling the police. >> reporter: okay. police say they have gathered over 100 hours of video as evidence reportedly recorded by wright and her alleged accomplice, 57-year-old mark strong sr. >> not guilty, your honor. >> reporter: he is also charged with prostitution and violation of privacy. strong's attorney says he welcomes the release of the name. >> usually, disclosed to the public, i don't think should be held back in this case. >> reporter: we contacted two men who confirmed they are on the list. the first told us he made a mistake and would like to move on. the other said, quote, we will all be exonerated. abc news has decided not to air the list of names until we can positively identify the johns involved. george? >> which makes total sense. john schriffen thanks very much.
7:15 am
let's go to dan abrams to get more on this. a bit of a compromise by the judge in this case. they released the names but not the address and age. >> typically when someone is accused of a crime, the name and address gets released. so why is the judge saying this is different? he's saying it's different because these alleged johns, he says, are also alleged victims of the violation of privacy because they were apparently recorded taped having sex. now the judge says they're also crime victims and crime victims' addresses don't get released. and so that's the compromise the judge has reached here. i think it's a bit of a stretch legally. now, you have people saying, well, wait a second. it's not me. all these names are being released. >> more than 100 names on the list total. only 21 released so far. but, boy, you're out of luck if you've got a common name like john smith. >> honey, i promise it's not that dan abrams. you know, it's not me, honey. i swear. i mean, that must be what's happening because all of these names are being released without addresses or ages or any other information.
7:16 am
and so people are now being forced to effectively admit or deny they are the person whose name has been released. and that's really the key here. this is just an embarrassment in crime because you're talking about a very low-level misdemeanor. >> i'll vouch for you, dan. i'm sure you not on there. >> there is a tv personality apparently on the list. i can now say, for the first time, it is not me. >> thank goodness. >> it's also not george. okay. now, to the uproar over flamin' hot cheetos, now banned in many schools around the country. the snack is popular with kids, with its own facebook fan page and online competitions on who can eat the most cheetos the fastest. why is this snack, which has been around for years, suddenly under fire? abc's linsey davis has the story. ♪ >> reporter: this music video about the bite-sized snack has more than 3 million hits on youtube. ♪ but this morning, flamin' hot cheetos are under fire.
7:17 am
school districts in california and new mexico are trying to ban them. and illinois and rockford public schools where they used to sell 150,000 bags of flamin' hots each year, they've been taken off the menu. >> if children want to bring in snacks that are high in fat and high in calories, that's their choice, they can do that, but we're going be to provide those kinds of foods. >> reporter: school officials say the concern is their nutritional value or lack thereof. each of the snack-sized bags contains 26 grams of fat. and a quarter of the sodium recommended for the entire day. and on top of the artificial coloring and flavoring, they are hyper palatable, means they're highly addictive, and the notion you can't just eat one, well, there may actually be some science behind it. >> our brain is hard-wired to find things like fat and salt really rewarding. now, we have foods that have them in such high levels that could trigger an addictive process. >> reporter: dr. ashley gearhart
7:18 am
a clinical psychologist says children are more susceptible because their bodies are still developing. frito lay, which makes and sells cheetos, tells abc news, it is committed to responsible and ethical marketing practices, which includes not marketing our products to children ages 12 and under. some school officials say, try telling that to these kids. ♪ frito-lay also told us that they don't sell snacks directly to the schools. the district in illinois now sells the baked cheetos. we have the real thing here. i don't know, elizabeth, can you just eat one. we'll see. >> wait. i have to have more. >> here's another one for you, too. >> just kidding. sam? these are terrible, i have to say. they're just spicy. >> eat just one. >> thank you.
7:19 am
>> want some water? >> maybe a little. the news is in on september, by the way. if you take the air temperature and the water temperature, and the land temperature together, here's what you get. the warmest september since we've been keeping records, says, noaa. since 1880. now, the lowest extent of artic sea ice. the antarctic sea ice is more this year. yeah, they are kind of spicy. there's an area of high pressure on the eastern seaboard. boston 60. new york, 60. washington, d.c. 67. cincinnati, 67 degrees. they also make a nice pointer. we'll show you the big heat in the middle of the country. denver comes up to 85 degrees.

homeless hitman to beat his wife to death. both men appeared in court for the first time. and abc's abbie boudreau has the story. >> reporter: when police found shauna tiaffay, a las vegas cocktail waitress and a mother, brutally murdered in late september, it seemed like a rand dochl crime. but this morning, prosecutors are seeking an indictment against her husband, george tiaffay, a las vegas city firefighter and west point graduate, saying he was the mastermind behind the gruesome attack. accusing tiaffay of offering this homeless man $20,000 of beating his once beautiful bride to death. >> i felt that the minute i heard that -- the way that she had died, that he had nothing to do with it. >> reporter: and this morning, shauna's closest friends are breaking their silence. telling "gma" tiaffay was an abusive husband. >> he was known for being controlling of her. and this is a case of him trying
7:33 am
to control her. >> one of those, if i can't have her, nobody else can. >> reporter: police say the evidence speaks for itself. the details of the alleged murder plot read like a crime novel. investigators say george tiaffay was in constant contact with this homeless man, noel stevens, calling him 86 times in september. the two exchanged phone calls in the moments before police believe shauna was murdered. police say they obtained surveillance video of the two men walking out of a hardware store together. after purchasing a hammer, gloves, a knife. overnight, stevens' attorney refused to comment. but george tiaffay's lawyer issued a statement on would behalf of his family. saying, in part, george did not commit the crimes he is charged with. and while all marriages have their ups and downs, george and shauna were committed to each other and especially their daughter. shauna's friends are not
7:34 am
convinced. >> to become a fireman and help people, how is it that you, you know, you want to save lives? but you take a life? >> reporter: for "good morning america," abbie boudreau, abc news, los angeles. >> and for more on this case, we're going to bring in our legal team, nancy grace from atlanta who will be covering the story on her hnl show "nancy grace." and here in new york, "gma's" legal analyst, dan abrams. good morning to you both. nancy, i'd like to start with you. there's lots of circumstantial evidence as this case lays out. how strong does the case seem? >> i have three names that summarize the case. they are walmart, pawnshops and palm's casino. listen, everybody knows the degree of the surveillance at walmart. and here you have this firefighter, a west point grad, i might add, hanging out with a homeless guy. and they go on several shopping sprees. they're all caught on video. and, dan abrams, you know the sophistication used at walmart to catch shoplifters.
7:35 am
nasa could get tips from them. then, at a pawnshop. he pays another friend, 200 bucks, to pawn the wife's wedding band and ring. and of course, they go cash in her chips at the palm's casino. even more security cameras. it's a video game for a jury. >> and the key is going to be linking the two of them, right? tiaffay is going to say, look, he may have done it. i'm not -- likely will be his defense, which is trying to distance himself as much as possible from stevens. saying, he may have had something to do with this. i had nothing to do it. i had him do odd jobs around my house, et cetera. but you can't link me to the crime. the problem is, when you're talking about 86 phone calls -- >> that's a lot of phone calls. >> and this is -- i talked about this before. hit men don't exist. right? you can't call and find a hitman. so, people end up turning to
7:36 am
their local homeless guy sometimes and offering them $600. >> but, dan, $600? >> that handyman. when you said the key, i thought you were being literal. but remember, this guy, this firefighter, west point grad, goes and gets an extra key made to his wife's apartment. and there's no forced entry. there's nothing. the homeless guy clearly used the key the firefighter made and gave him. >> doesn't this, both of you, seem surprisingly low-rent for a murder-for-hire plot? we're talking not just $600, but kill her with a hammer? >> first of all, he was supposed to allegedly pay up to $20,000. but murder-for-hire and we talked about this before, it doesn't happen how it happens in the movies. there's no brad pitt out there who can be hired to do this sort of stuff. >> well, the other thing here is, they're going to use the homeless guy, noel stevens, the
7:37 am
37-year-old homeless dude to turn state's evidence against the husband. >> do you think they cut a beale with him, nancy? >> yeah, i do. i noticed that they -- the lawyer says he didn't do the crime. he may not have bludgeoned the woman to death. but to say he was the mastermind is a gross exaggeration, the reality is, i want to break it down to the victim. when paramedics got there, they said they could not tell -- that the injuries were so severe whether she had been shot or bludgeoned to death. can you imagine that oscar-winning performance when the husband comes in and goes -- when he finds his dead wife. please. >> that's why i don't think think will cut a deal with stevens. i do not think that the person that the authorities believe bludgeoned her, that they cut some sort of deal with him. >> if they got such a strong case -- >> with the hammer that the husband bought at walmart. >> right, but, nancy, if they've
7:38 am
got this strong case with all this surveillance video that you've outlined with the receipts, with the cell phone calls, why would they cut a deal with either side? >> you know, frankly, i don't know why prosecutors really ever cut deals because i think they should all stew in the same pot together. but they may cut a deal with the homeless guy, to ensure that guilty verdict on the husband. >> not going to happen. >> that would be the only reason. i hope you're right, dan. >> okay. dan, nancy, we'll be staying on top of this, as the court proceedings continue. thank you so much. it's time for the weather. let's get to sam champion. hey, good morning, elizabeth. i'll tell you what you can hire, and that's an incredible graphic artist to make a 3-d rendering of this hurricane out in the atlantic. thank you, that transition was beautiful, wasn't it? hurricane rafael, by the way, the 3d view. this looks like it's a dead shot for bermuda. but it isn't. it's going to swing a little bit towards the eastern seaboard. as the front comes off the east

>> one of the ideas behind this book is you're mixing up healthy food and comfort food. >> the way that people eat. sometimes we're in a healthy mood. sometimes we're in an indulgent mood. i don't think you should deny yourself anything. if you keep the portions in control. if you start obsessing about a food you can't have, one of the -- you're going to eventually go crazy on it. >> let's start with indulging with pumpkin pancakes. >> i had left overpuover pumpki. i have a lot of syrup on that. >> it's good. >> this is a healthy soup. this is supereasy, too. we grill our chicken a lot during the week. we'll always have grilled chicken in there. >> he's getting some. it's really good. it's supereasy. and all you need to do is take -- i think the vegetables have already been precooked. and you just put a little blanch on them for a couple minutes.
8:34 am
and boiling water. salt and water. >> celery and zucchini. >> and a little bit of barley. that's good for you. and put them over top. >> it's just chicken stock? >> this is low-sodium, nonfat chicken stock. and you have a healthy meal. and the turkey meatloaf is inspired by my son. i like to be around when he's doing his homework. he is 21 now and touring europe. i would make him sit in the kitchen at the kitchen table. and i would be cooking. i could make sure he was doing his homework and getting everything done. on every thursday, we would have me meatloaf. >> and the recipes come from all over. your childhood. you actually had a recipe from
8:35 am
your former mother-in-law? >> there's a couple of recipes that mrs. van halen taught me. there's a lot of italian in the cookbook. but mainly family and recipes that i've learned from the women i love in my life. >> the pancakes, it's supple. is it just pancake mix? >> you don't need pancake mix? pancakemaking, it's like flour and sugar and eggs. it's supereasy. >> supereasy and supergood. >> you have a great food stylish. >> karen. >> it smells good. thank you for coming in. and you can get all of the recipes on our website at goodmorningamerica.com on yahoo! >> or buy the book. >> get a taste or a flavor for the recipes. excellent pitch. let's get some weather, sam. >> i love you, valerie. or just buy the book. and we will. tell me your names?
8:36 am
>> karen hughes and michelle hand. >> i'm going to take that to robin to be in the office or the house. you did some work on that. that's beautiful. get ready to redecorate. there's a lot going on here. a little light. and we could have a party off that sign. let's get to the boards. one or two things going on we want to show you. pictures out of philadelphia. great shots yesterday. the cold front going through. you can tell the difference today. clear as a bell out here now. mt. hood, oregon, another place that picked up rain that we clear out. look at the temperatures, as well. san angelo, you're at 80. 80's the number for a lot of folks. but the cool air coming behind the cold front that left the northwest and moves into the plains. chicago, 70 today. but 56 on thursday. get ready for that. kansas city, as well. you're going d
8:37 am
>> we are alive with the best audience in times square. all of that weather was brought to you by jimmy dean. where do we go? >> lara. >> thank you, everybody. now, we turn to hayden panettiere. she's gone from playing a cheerleader in "heroes" to a hit sensation making trouble on "nashville." and she's here live to tell us about the big, new role. congratulations. >> thank you. >> what a fun show to be a part of. >> it is. it's so much fun. a dream come true. i recorded for years when i was younger. i always said that my heart lives with country music. >> i knew that. i read that you were a singer.
8:38 am
what a great opportunity to put the pipes to use. >> yeah. and one of the coolest people i've ever met in my life. >> i was talking to connie britton. you do sing every song we hear on that show. is there going to be an album? >> they're releasing a lot of songs on itunes. they had two drops today. one of mine and one "telescope." and it's amazing that the music is so different for each character. it takes you on this journey. you see them grow and change in character. >> it's funny you say that. the music does tell part of the story. and it gives an underlying current. your character has an edge, shall we say? >> a slight edge. slightly edgy. that's a nice way of putting it. >> how is that to play someone, someone that -- well, rhymes with witch? >> it's a blast.
8:39 am
people never saw me in that character. it was going to be an uphill battle to be seen as something else. anytime you look at a character that you want to play, you want to look for the layers. you want it to be -- like an onion. where you get to peel back layers. and there's no point in playing the witch, without having some sort of motive behind it. and vulnerability. and people, i think, are really going to fall in love with the character and understand her pain. >> well, we want to show everybody a little bit of what's going on in the show. you are rivals, i think is an okay word, to say with connie britton. she plays a country music legend. and you, in this scene we're about to see, are interested in her band leader, played by charles astin. let's take a little sneak peek. >> don't be fooled by the shiny exterior. i'm more than meets the eye. >> are you ready to get to it? >> that's what i was thinking.
8:40 am
>> this is not how songs get written. >> no. this is what songs get written about. >> all right. there's a sneak peek. we don't have a lot of time. but we have a game for you. are you ready? your country music chops. i'm going to give you a line from a song. you tell us who sings it. the first being, i fell into a burning ring of fire. >> johnny cash. >> that's right. i was going to give you two choices. number two. i got my keys in the side -- >> carrie underwood. >> she's cheer captain. i'm on the bleachers. dreaming about the day. >> tay. >> taylor swift. you're qualified for the job. you can see her on "nashville." stay with us.
8:41 am
a little country music, everybody, with jason aldean. he's with us, next. on "gma."
8:42 am
8:43 am
8:44 am
all right. multiplatinum country singer, jason aldean is going on the fast track to superstardom. his latest single, "take a little ride," off his latest album, "night train" out today. billboard just labeled him the hottest country male act in country music. jason will perform for us in a little bit. we're delighted to have you here. each one of your albums have has outsold the priest one. no pressure with today. >> you know, i tried to take a little of the pressure off. there was a lot of expectations for this new album. just try to go in and find some great songs. you know, make what we thought was a great album. and i think we were able to do that. >> you have said you never want your albums to sound like anybody else on the radio. what do you mean like that? >> i think at times, in
8:45 am
nashville, you have -- >> a sound? >> session players that come in and play on everybody's records. and i've chosen to use my road band in the studio with me. you know, and i think that just kind of sets us apart. everything from my producer to our engineers, to my band. i think it gives a different sound. and makes our records not sound like anybody else's. >> with all of the record sales, all of the number one hits, the cma nominations, has come fame. and you call that, quote, a learning experience. what do you mean by that? >> you know, i haven't been famous all that long. it's something i'm still learning how to deal with. and you know, something that i, you know, learn from every day. >> and your family, too, i imagine. you recently had an incident where you did publicly apologize. it was a raucous night and stuff happened. >> it's an unfortunate thing. but i've kind of said, you know, what i had to say to everybody about it. and i really don't think there's
8:46 am
anything really left to say about it. >> it's hard, though, when you're living in the public spotlight. you signed up for it. maybe your loved ones didn't. >> absolutely. and i think that's the thing. unfortunately, they are kind of along for the ride, too. you know, it's something we all kind of are learning to deal with. >> we're going to hear you sing after the break, "take a little ride." that almost didn't make it on to this album, i hear? >> it was almost on my last album. you know, and we kind of started running out of room to put it on the last album. luckily, we were able to hang on to it, save it and get it on the new record. it became the lead single for this album. so far, after ten weeks, we're sitting number one. it's doing really well for us. >> got it out of your drawer full of songs. jason aldean will be back. we'l
